Domain Madness Final Tally: $136,320

In what turned out to be an exciting hybrid live/silent auction, Domain Madness ended on a strong note, achieving a sales total of $136,320. The majority of the bidding took place during the live auction, led by Mike Fiol and Sevan Derderian, who served as auctioneers, live from The Palms in Las Vegas. Additional bids were also received after the live auction ended.

The inaugural Domain Madness   was watched virtually by over 200 viewers. Some of the biggest names in the industry participated in the bidding, as seen in the bidder nicknames. It was fun watching Mike and Sevan interact with the rest of the Domain Consultant and Thought Convergence teams and guests who were in the background of the Kingpin suite at The Palms.

I believe this was the first live auction held over the Internet that didn’t take place during a domain conference, and it shows that these can be successful.
